Why the Dallas Cowboys will win the comically bad NFC East

31. . . . New York Giants. 2. team

The New York “football” Giants have more of a complete roster than some might realize. They have offensive weapons and a defense that played as a cohesive unit last season under first-year head coach Joe Judge.

For those and many more reasons is why I have the New York Giants as the Dallas Cowboys’ biggest threat to win the division.

With that said, I find it hilarious that a brawl broke out at Giants training camp and none other than starting quarterback Daniel Jones aka Danny Dines was at the bottom of the pile. How does your starting quarterback end up at the bottom of a pile?

Dallas Cowboys fans do not need to be reminded how deflating it is to lose your starting quarterback yet that is a risk his fellow teammates took when the brawl started.

The Carolina Panthers just releases cornerback JT Ibe because he laid out wide receiver Keith Kirkwood in practice. You are not alone if you are struggling to know who those guys are. The Panthers could have handled it a different way yet chose to make an example.

The Giants on the other hand opted for a high school punishment.

Instead of continuing to practice and get the most out of camp, head coach Joe Judge apparently lined up his team and made them run wind sprints. In the era where athletes train year-round, it is comically bad for a head coach to “condition” his team rather than hold those who started the brawl accountable.

This is especially bad when you realize teams have to give players a five-day acclimation period and many other rules to start off training camp.

The NFLPA argued on the behalf of the players on how long practices can be. According to the March 15th collective bargaining agreement, teams can only have players on the field for a total of four hours per day. Players can only spend a maximum of 2.5 hours a day in full pads.

Having your team run sprints when they should be utilizing their practice padded time wisely is a bad way to start off the first padded practice for the Giants. This could be one of the reasons former Dallas Cowboys and now recently retired center Joe Looney left the team only days after signing with them.

This is who I have as being the biggest threat to the Dallas Cowboys NFC East crown this season. Sorry, but it only gets worse.
